turnaround at best buy. mark: we have a rally here as well. the euro is at a two month low against the dollar. every single industry group on the stoxx 600 is rising today. again, there are loads of earning to tell you about. europe's biggest home improver is kingfisher. they had better than expected quarterly sales. improvet should following today's figures because of the pdq strength. it says early in the transformation program is not being achieved or exceeded. it's a busy day for deutsche bank. they are investigating whether it's inflated the value of
